pounds of CO2 absorbed per year (approximately).

When you book your trip to AMAZONAS with us, you are contributing to our reforestation project. We contribute 1% of our profit yearly. Besides reducing the carbon footprint of your trip, you and we are contributing to regenerating degraded soil, to create new habitats for fauna species and to support local communities through the generation of legal employments. We really appreciate your support.

In most cases, your contribution is one tree per person per day and 4 trees absorb 1 ton of CO2 in 10 years. In average, each person generates 0,86 tons of CO2 in a 8-day overland trip (flights not included)*. Therefore, most of the trips are carbon neutral.

If you would like to make a greater contribution to the offsetting of carbon emissions through our reforestation project in Amazonas, please contact us.
